In the last couple of months, Tracy Metcalfe (played by Amy Walsh) has been suffering from postnatal depression after the birth of her daughter Frankie. With her fiance, Nate Robinson (Jurell Carter) proposing and dealing with a crying baby Tracy hasn’t been able to cope but hasn’t confided in anyone. Fans have also seen her break down in the pub and smash up Frankie’s baby gym due to her frustration. Monday night’s episode revealed Tracy leaving Emmerdale without informing anyone, telling the cab driver she wouldn’t be returning. What does this mean for fiancé Nate and her daughter Frankie?
At the beginning of the episode, Tracy was seen reading a story to baby Frankie and looked to be quite happy and content.
After fiancé Nate joined her from downstairs, Tracy stood up and grabbed a black bin bag to take outside when Nate asked: “What’s all that?”
“Oh nothing, I tripped over Frankie’s baby gym like an idiot, and it’s all mangled,” she said, lying to Nate.
Not thinking it was a big deal, Nate wondered: “Don’t suppose Frankie will even notice,” however Tracy dismissed the conversation.
After finding out Lydia Dingle (Karen Blick) wouldn’t be able to look after Frankie, Nate could see she was stressed and tried to comfort her: “Hey, don’t stress over Lydia she’ll get better soon.
“I’m just proper jealous you had Frankie all to yourself yesterday, it’s going to be you and her even more now I’ve got all this work on.”
Not wanting to feel like she didn’t have a purpose, Tracy snapped: “You’re not the only one who works, remember?”
Feeling bad, Nate apologised before heading off to work and asking Tracy one last time if she was alright on her own, to which she replied: “I’m fine, stop worrying about me and go.”
Later, Tracy was caught by Gabby Thomas (Rosie Bentham) as she was putting the rubbish bag outside.
Gabby and Tracy exchanged pleasantries when Gabby told her: “I’m going away for a few days, so that should be nice.”
Noticing how far along in her pregnancy she was, Tracy asked: “You’re not cutting it too fine thought are ya, clearing off when you’re just about ready to drop?”
“Oh well, I’ve got a few weeks left still feel like chilling out, to be honest, hey, you’ll know do I need to pack a bag in case anything starts moving or?” Gabby asked.
Taken back by her question, Tracy said: “Oh god knows, I’m not sure I’m the right person to ask to be honest, it’s all the other mums in the world who’ve got a grip on all that practical stuff.”
Trying to make her feel better, Gabby replied: “No way, you make it look so easy, it’s like you’ve got it all down to perfection.”
Tracy was then visited by Belle Dingle (Eden Taylor-Draper) as she needed to drop off some client contract forms which Nate needed to sign.
Noticing how exhausted Tracy looked, Belle asked: “Are you ok, Tracy?”
“Yeah, course, why wouldn’t I be?” she replied with Belle saying: “Just been worrying about you since that night at the pub, you seemed really stressed.”
Trying to hide her exhaustion and worry, she replied: “I told you, didn’t I there’s nothing wrong I’m just tired. I don’t know what anyone expects when someone’s got a baby, it’s back-breaking.”

After Belle leaves, baby Frankie starts to cry again, but instead of tending to her daughter’s needs, she tries to drown out her crying by turning the TV.
With this making things worse, she shuts off both the TV and the baby monitor, now only hearing the faint cries of her daughter.
Viewers then saw Tracy walking along the bridge with Frankie crying in her pram, with voices swirling around in her head of all the nice things people have said to her that day.
She takes Frankie out of her pram and holds her very close to the edge of the bridge, could this be the last resort for Tracy as a way out of her misery?
Eventually, Tracy goes home and is greeted once more by Nate after he comes home from work, she tells him there’s pizza and some beers for him as she grabs her bag.
Nate asks: “You off somewhere?” to which Tracy tells him: “Yeah, just to Priya’s girlie night, you don’t mind, do you?”
He tells her it’s perfectly fine, and she also asks whether if it’s ok for her to stay there if it gets too late for her to come home.
Before leaving, she tells Nate: “I love you, Nate, I love you both,” to which Nate replies: “We love you too.”
However, Tracy doesn’t end up going to Priya Kotecha’s (Fiona Wade) house as she is seen sitting at the bus stop.
A cab soon pulls up and asks her for directions, but she tells the driver: “Oh, it’s fine I’ll direct you, it’s a bit of a trek.”
Asking whether she wanted him to book her return, she replied: “No, no need to. I’m not coming back,” leaving the cobbles, Nate, and Frankie behind.
Amid her breakdown, could this mean her half-sister Vanessa Woodfield (Michelle Hardwick) will make a return the cobbles to look after Frankie?
If Vanessa returns for her niece, will Nate stand up and fight for his daughter, or will the betrayal of Tracy’s departure be too heart-breaking deep for him to carry on?
Emmerdale airs weekdays at 7pm on ITV.
